    This was good to read as I am struggling to quiet my mind enough to write this morning.


    • It’s always a struggle for me Lucy, and it was a tough few weeks, (I always feel out of sorts when I don’t feel I’ve achieved much writing in a day), I hope it helps. There’s no easy answer to sitting down and pouring your heart and soul into a page, but what a privilege it is to try. So many people haven’t got the confidence or feel that their voice isn’t good enough, that makes me sad. Every single person has an amazing story to tell, fiction or non-fiction. Good luck!
